1997 National Stroke Averages

burton.jpg (7483 bytes)Lewis Burton's march to the 1997 PPA Player of the Year Award included winning the 1997 Tracy Moore Stroke Average Award. Burton's stroke average for 1997 was better than a half a stroke better than Rainey Statum, his nearest competitor for both stroke average average and relative stroke average.

The effect of the difficult scoring in the Dallas, Texas Open can be seen on the standings of Andy Coradini, Randy Reeves, and Kevin Lacey who finished third, fourth, and fifth in relative stroke average but no better than sixth in stroke average.

Last year's Tracy Moore Stroke Average Award winner's, Mike Brown and Danny Dore finished out of the top five in both the stroke average and relative stroke average showing the competitive nature of the game.
